Cornet, Keyboard, Drums, Kazoo, and Tuba...That does it for me.

Morgen said...

and what's a mellophone?
sounds like what the muppets play on mawahnahnah


Turnbaby said...

Piano, glockenspiel, bongos and timbales, vibraphone, cymbals, drums, guitar, bubble wrap, kazoo and some sort of flute.

Janna said...

Matt-man and Turnbaby: We should form a band!!

Morgen: A mellophone is like an extra-large trumpet, sorta. It's what french horn players usually have to use (instead of french horns) when they're in a marching band.
HERE is a nice Wikipedia article all about it. :)

"Mah Nà Mah Nà" debuted as part of Umiliani's soundtrack for the Italian softcore pornography movie Svezia, Inferno e Paradiso (Sweden, Heaven and Hell) (1968), a pseudo-documentary film about wild sexual activity and other behavior in Sweden ("Mah Nà Mah Nà" accompanied a scene set in a sauna). A soundtrack album, "Svezia, Inferno e Paradiso" was released in 1968. The movie was also released under the English title Sweden Heaven and Hell.

Just a little factoid I think Morgen might find interesting about Mahnahmana. You can check the rest out on

I'm the Anonymous that started with Piccolo/Flute...cause I'm a genius and didn't type my name in.
